Hyatt’s Andaz opens new hotels in New York, California

Hyatt’s boutique brand, Andaz, is making its way from coast-to-coast with new properties in New York and California. Andaz Wall Street opened Jan. 18 and another New York property will be unveiled on 5th Avenue later this year. In the meantime, Andaz San Diego is opening its doors on Feb. 1.

The Andaz Wall Street (photo) features 253 guestrooms with loft-like ceilings and seven-foot windows. Guests can dine at the hotel’s restaurant, Wall & Water, which overlooks the East River. Bar Seven Five, named for its 75 Wall Street address, serves cocktails and appetizers until midnight. Rates for the Wall Street Andaz start at $275/night.

Andaz San Diego will debut in the property currently known as Ivy Hotel in San Diego‘s Gaslamp Quarter at 6th Avenue and F Street. The 159-room hotel features 17 suites, one with exclusive access to a poolside cabana. The Ivy Rooftop features a pool overlooking the city skyline, and serves cocktails until you’re ready to dine at the Ivy Ultra Lounge and Wine Bar, which serves 88 wines by-the-glass. The multi-level Ivy Nightclub gets hopping late-night but don’t worry, the Quarter Kitchen will serve up your hangover recipe of choice the next morning.

Hyatt launched the boutique hotels in 2007 and currently has locations in London and West Hollywood.Rumor in the hotel world is that Hyatt will open an Andaz Austin later this year. We’ll keep you posted on details.
